AIHA Standards Development
The goals for AIHA standards development activities are:
- to ensure that AIHA obtains and maintains an appropriate level of involvement or leadership in industrial/occupational hygiene-related standards globally;
- to encourage broader participation by AIHA in the development of international IH/OH standards while supporting and strengthening the existing domestic standards development efforts;
- to support the development and harmonization of national and international IH/OH standards; and
- to provide a forum for AIHA members to provide meaningful input into the standards development process.
AIHA Standards Engagement
The AIHA Guideline Foundation Standards Advisory Panel has developed a Standards Engagement Process that will allow AIHA to:
- identify the consensus standards issues that are important to AIHA members and stakeholders;
- track activities pertaining to standards development that has an impact on the industrial hygiene profession and worker health and safety;
- determine the appropriate level of AIHA involvement in any such standards; and
- engage more effectively in developing and influencing standards in support of the organization’s strategic goals and objectives.
